Question about Maytag MMV5156AAS Microwave Oven
My husband went to heat something up in our microwave the other day and he heard a popping sound. After that, nothing will heat up and the microwave is louder. We are lost on what to do since it is an in range microwave and we can just take it to someone so they can take a look at what the problem might be. What could be wrong, and how do we get it fixed? This microwave is only 5 years old!
It probably has a shorted high voltage diode, a relatively cheap fix.
Here is a link you or someone you know can use for test help, but read the safety warnings first: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Also, you can download Maytag owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
You can find your nearest Maytag-authorized servicer here.
Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.
